The Future of Gas in the Heat Sector in the UK and Europe

Over the past decade the future of gas has largely been analysed through the lens of the power generation sector. However, over the longer term the role of gas in the heat sector will be of equal importance, especially as the impact of environmental issues and regulation increases. In two papers the authors analyse the potential competition between electricity and gas in the heat sectors of the UK and Europe in an attempt to explain how the interaction between the two sources of heat may play out over time, and whether they should be regard as being complimentary with or competitive to each other.
